When I’m distraught / When I’m trying to pour my heart out / Into your waiting ears / Listen / Give me a few words of comfort / Hug me / Give me a smile / A smile of reassurance / That everything will be alright / Even if I believe otherwise.
Qarib Qarib Singlle is the story of Yogi (Irrfan) and Jaya Shashidharan (Parvathy Thiruvothu). Yogi and Jaya have completely conflicting personalities. While Yogi is a rich businessman who is modest about his wealth, carefree, and lives in the present, Jaya works in insurance, and feels the need to keep people around her happy.
There’s nothing better in the world than feeling pumped after reading a good book or watching a good movie. Okay, I agree. Not all books and not all movies are entertaining. But you get the general idea. It is the anticipation that is most exciting.
I have always been vocal about how much I admire Amish’s writing. From the Shiva trilogy to Ram: Scion of Ikshvaku, the first in the Ram Chandra series, I’ve loved everything he’s written. His spin on Hinduism’s favorite Gods without losing the essence was what held my attention in the first place, even though I am not too religious.
Ellen DeGeneres is one of the funniest women showbiz has ever seen. And any debate about it would be futile. Being one of the most influential talk show hosts, not to mention generous, Ellen has helped thousands of people over the years. Her quick wit and poker face seldom fails to elicit laughter.
Our understanding of the world is a little twisted at most times. It takes a lot for us to understand that to err is human. Nobody is perfect. And our flaws are what make us what we are. They define our personality.
As a person who loves their sleep, it is plain enough why I picked up this book. Sue Townsend’s The Woman Who Went To Bed For A Year is the story of Eva Beaver, a woman who is fed up of everyday life and takes to her bed. For a year. Obviously. And the summary had me thinking of how I could be this woman someday.
At first glance, it seems like a teen romance – something that gives them the impetus to plod on through the challenging years. But it is not. Sure, the encouragement is there, but not in the way we envisioned it to be. The phrase “appearances are deceptive” quickly jumped to mind as I was halfway through the story.
Saharasri Subrata Roy Sahara – I knew that this man, a brilliant businessman, was arrested in 2014. But I didn’t know why. It doesn’t matter early in this review, but it somewhat dented my opinion of him when I read the book with his arrest in mind. I agreed to review Think With Me, the second instalment in his Thoughts from Tihar, because I hoped to see some level-headed arguments from this well-read man.
The only book I’d read of William Shakespeare was Timon of Athens. As time passed, I thought, maybe I should be reading his more popular works like Romeo and Juliet, and As You Like It. But then my book list kept expanding (and still does) to the point where I did not want to concentrate on one author at all times. There is another reason, but I’ll reveal it as I round off this review.
